Changes coming for Humana Dental and Vision
Humana is excited to announce that we have new Dental and Vision products that are being launched in Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Texas, West Virginia  and Wisconsin on June 18, 2016.  Read about all the new exciting changes that are coming for our members!

New Dental plans In CT, FL, IL, IA, KS, KY, LA, MI, MO, NE, NM, PA, TX, WV and WI

We will no longer be offering our Preventive Plus, Veterans and Loyalty dental plans through the association of Peoples Benefit Alliance (PBA).   Any new business sales, as of June 18th, will now be non-association based and will no longer have association fees associated with them.  This will allow some of our new plans, such as Loyalty Plus, to offer lower monthly rates in these states, including a greater decease for individuals age 51 and over.   Overall, the benefits offered in the new plans will be very similar to the current, existing plans.  Click the corresponding links below to see the new rates for new enrollees.   All current business will not be affected by this change and will continue to be supported as is.

Our new Humana Vision plan will now be offered in CT, FL, IL, IA, KS, KY, LA, MI, MO, NE, NM, PA, TX, WV and WI.  This new vision plan has been designed with the member in mind and will provide more of what they need for coverage:

  • New annual benefit allowances to help clients with ongoing vision needs and help make vision care more affordable for members

  • New frame frequency of every 12 months instead of every 24 months
  • Similar broad network of providers for members to access care
